The Biggest Problem in Germany Today

Yesterday I reported on several vicious crimes which were carried out on German people by criminal immigrants over just the past few days.

Such cases are the tip of an iceberg, unfortunately - and you would think that in itself would be a huge problem.

Not according to the UN, however. In their view, the most pressing issue in Germany today is racism.

Special rapporteur Githu Muigai, a Kenyan, has completely eliminated all forms of discrimination and human rights abuses in his own great country, helped to create African utopias in neighbouring countries, so thought he would visit the hellhole that is modern Germany to spread some wisdom. Clearly, it is much needed.

Here are his conclusions:
Germany needs more ethnic minorities in its political system, the police and its courts, and has to do more to tackle racism in daily life, a UN special rapporteur said on Wednesday.

"My visit has convinced me that much remains to be done," Githu Muigai, UN special rapporteur for racism, said after a 10-day fact-finding trip across the country.

People with a migrant background "are under-represented in important institutions, including the political system, the police and the courts," Muigai said.

Last November, the Greens became the first major party to elect a Turkish-German as leader, Cem Ozdemir, but ethnic minorities are generally a rarity in German politics, making up fewer than 15 national MPs.

Muigai, who was paying a routine visit to Germany, also said that due to the historical experience of Germany with Nazism, there is a "tendency to equate racism with extremist politics."

"I think that this great country needs to turn its attention to the problems of daily racism and discrimination, that is the racism and discrimination to be found in daily life in schools, public places, in housing, in employment etcetera," he said.

He added however that he was "encouraged by the open recognition by authorities that Germany is nowadays a country of migrants and that migrants make a positive contribution to society."

Kenyan-born Muigai, special rapporteur since August, also said that far-right groups in Germany "demand constant vigilance" and should be banned "within the constitutional legal mechanism provided by German law."

Germany also needs to do more to speed up the processing of asylum-seekers, Muigai said.

Muigai said that his full report, due to be presented at the Human Rights Council in 2010, will also focus on the plight of Muslims in Germany following the increase in security measures aimed at tackling Islamic extremism.

"The Muslim community does have very special concerns, particularly in the aftermath of 9/11 and in the manner in which the security apparatus have responded to ... the challenge of the fight against terrorism," he said.
Right. So, in other words, Germany and other Western countries fund an organisation which sends this man from a poor, badly governed backwater to tell them that they need more Third World colonists, must promote more colonists into vital positions regardless of ability, must accept that they are 'a nation of migrants', speed up the taxpayer-funded processes which allow colonists to remain one way or the other and accept that the colonisation is desirable, inevitable and irreversible.

Despite all the statistical and anecdotal evidence to the contrary, of course.

But then, who cares what Germans think, especially in their own country? If they step out of line, ban them, jail them - why not use water cannon and live bullets?

It worked for Odinga, after all.

My favourite line is probably the one that contains 'the plight of Muslims living in Germany'.

Plight. That's quite a word, isn't it?

I lived in Germany for nine months, and had the misfortune to teach English in a heavily-immigrant school - I can tell you now that the only 'plight' Muslims in Germany face is self-inflicted.

Of course Muigai feels that if Muslims are unhappy in Germany, then the latter should change to accommodate them - rather than the former adapting or leaving.

For my part, I am far more concerned about the plight of Germans and civilised immigrants who find themselves trapped in Muslim enclaves.

A soaring crime rate and a demand for more cash and concessions aren't the only joy Muslim colonists bring, however:
Leaders from the domestic intelligence service, federal police and the Interior Ministry will meet in Berlin on Thursday for talks on possible terrorist activity, with more meetings to come in the next weeks, according to the paper.

“We are currently finalising the entire security catalogue and preparing ourselves for a possible chaos phase,” a high-ranking security official told the paper.

Officials plan to increase preventative measures and surveillance of suspected terrorists in the Islamist scene, where officials believe there may be discussion of using the election to increase pressure on the government to remove German troops from Afghanistan, the paper reported.

The “background noise” in the scene has recently been "unusually swollen" the security official said. But the paper reported there have been no concrete indications that a specific attack is being planned.

Süddeutsche Zeitung likened the terrorist risk level to that leading up to the World Cup, held in Germany in 2006. Security experts report that there has been a call within the Islamist community to be on the lookout for German soldiers and tourists.
So tell me, Mr Muigai - what is it the biggest problem in Germany today?
